Comments from the Editor

Welcome to another week of the Codeguru newsletter. We have a few new articles, a new video, and of course, tons of new forum posts. It is a crazy busy time, so rather than ramble for a few paragraphs, I'll simply invite you to come on over to the forums if you aren't already there!

Until next week...

Brad!
